Forever Home: A Second Chance for Zeus

Apr 28, 2016

Zeus is an adult male Shepherd mix. He was rescued from the euthanasia list at another facility. Zeus was going to be put down because he has an injury to his back leg that went unattended and does bother him. He is a pleasant guy who deserves a second chance. He is doing much better since he has been able to exercise that leg.

Buddy is a handsome steel gray cat who came to Animal Allies from a previous home. He has luxuriously long fur that he would love to have brushed while he cuddles with you. Buddy gets along well with other cats and is 11 years old. Come visit with him and you're sure to fall in love!

Caroline is a female Shepherd mix , guessed to be approximately 1 year old. Caroline came to us because she was scheduled to be euthanized at a kill facility. She is very afraid, but she craves the attention. She has shown no signs of aggression, just fear. When Caroline learns to trust, I have no doubt she will be a Velcro dog, stuck like glue to her humans. She is a beauty.

Darla is a blue American Staffordshire Terrier who is about 2.5 years old. She came to us from Duluth and is now looking for her new loving home! Darla is a very cute canine with heart-melting eyes that seem to look into your soul. She is wiggly, bouncy, super-duper playful and fun! She's very enthusiastic about food, people, and playing with other dogs that can match her high energy level.

Baelor is almost 2 years old and an Aussie/Springer mix.  Baelor was brought in by her owner because he doesn't have time for her anymore. She was very skiddish when she first came in , but she has warmed up to staff quickly. She really is a beautiful girl and deserves an owner who will make time for her.

Scarlet is a Golden Lab mix approximately 2 years old. She came to us as a stray. She is a wonderful girl. Listens so well, knows commands, is affectionate and playful. She would make a wonderful addition to any family.

If you've often thought that your cat or dog (or chicken) would be great at cheering people in nursing homes or hospitals, reading with kids in schools or helping college students Pet Away Worries and Stress, maybe you'd like to get them certified through an organization like Therapy Dogs International or Pet Partners.

 Honey is a beautiful cream and white Alaskan Husky mix who is 9 years old. She came to us from a previous home and is now looking for her new loving home. Honey can be shy at first, but once she warms up to you she is very friendly. This sweet girl is also very smart and knows how to sit and shake!

KUMD member Roy Lundquist called with some happy news after hearing about Shadow on last week's program - Shadow is happily settling into his forever home with Roy and their cat! 

Penny is female Boxer /Shepherd mix that is almost 2 years old. Penny has spent a year of those 2 years at the shelter. She is a very smart and affectionate girl. She just becomes protective of her family. Penny just needs an owner she trusts to follow their lead. She deserves a chance to shine.

Shadow is a 9 year old male Lab mix. Shadow has been with us for almost 2 years. He was brought in because his owners got divorced. It is so unfortunate that he hasn't been adopted, because some family is really missing out on a great dog. He is playful, polite, healthy and loving to all.
